  • EHS off to best start in five...

    For the first time in five years, the Eminence softball team started the season with a win and won two games in the opening week. It was just the start first-year head coach Bill Covington was looking for.

    The Lady Warriors beat Kentucky Country Day (13-6) last Wednesday night, lost to Waggener (23-11) on Thursday and beat Whitefield Academy (14-4) on Saturday for a 2-1 record after week one. It was the best start since 2005 when the Warriors were 2-0 through the first week and finished with a 6-13 overall record.

  • The Matt Wright era opens with...

    The Matt Wright era officially opened last week when the Henry County softball team defeated Carroll County on Tuesday and Harrison County on Saturday in what looks to be a promising year.

  • Shaky start for young Wildcats

    After finishing the first week with a 1-2 record, Henry County baseball coach Austin Hunsaker said his Wildcats need to play less tight and minimize mistakes in what he describes as a shaky start to a long season.

  • Former Henry players, teams...

    To help remember former players and motivate future ones, Henry County High School revealed several softball banners on Saturday before the Ladycats beat Harrison County 8-7.

    The new banners, which recognize past players and teams, will be placed around the softball field with the possibility of more banners being added as the program continues its quest to be a regional power.

  • Tracksters get needed experience

    Some of the top Kentucky track teams converged in Louisville for the Lenny Lyles Classic all day Saturday, and Henry County was right in the mix.

    It was an eye opener for the Cats, who officially started the 2010 season at the Carroll County All-Comers the week before but for many it was the first time going against so many top athletes in such an intense environment. Sedrick Wiliams, the team’s new head coach, hopes to use the meet, hosted by Central High School, as motivation.

  • Plenty of madness

    Someone, please, stop all this madness.

    Entering the Final Four in Indianapolis this weekend, I’m still in complete, utter shock as to the direction the men’s NCAA basketball tournament has taken in 2010. How can it be?

    Was Kansas really knocked out of the tournament in the second round? Honestly, did Kentucky get beaten by West Virginia? Is Duke really the only No. 1 seed left? I know it’s called March Madness for a reason, but it’s just never been more true than this year.

  • Eminence teams still await...

    Spring sports at Eminence High School are still on hold as the baseball, softball and track teams have yet to get started.

  • Time to get outside for spring...

    Yes, it’s that time. I can hear it, see it, feel it and smell it. Spring sports are among us once more.

    Like always at this time of the year, I’m eager. Eager for the bats to start cracking, to watch the pop flies go soaring, to feel the sunshine and to smell the freshly-cut grass. You have to love spring, and nothing reminds me more of this than the Spring Sports Preview I release each March.
